Find your perfect pooch this Valentine’s Day

Make theirs a yappy Valentine’s Day by visiting cupid-stricken collies Tess and Bramble at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe.

DEVOTED doggy partners Bramble and Tess are hoping to find new love this Valentine’s Day without being parted from each other.

The pair hope a potential new owner will visit them at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe and give them a new lifelong home together.

Tess is a 12 year old tri colour collie cross and Bramble is a 12 year old black and white collie cross. Both adore people but there is only one thing they hate - and that’s being apart.

“It’s always a little harder to find pairs of dogs new homes but it would be difficult not to fall in love with this adorable pair,” said Claire Joselin, supporter relations officer at the centre.

“They are very sociable and friendly and would be a wonderful addition to any family. They could live with other dogs and with older children.

“They are both looking for a retirement home with owners who will not leave them for too long. Despite their age they are both still active and love to go for walks and would love a big garden to run around in.
